Using a QuEChERS Approach for the Determination of Pesticide Residues in Soil

Application Notes UCT-SP06:

The use of pesticides in agriculture and households is widespread. To ensure food safety and prevent the unnecessary exposure of consumers to pesticides it is important to test for these residues in surveillance plans. While the greatest source of pesticide exposure comes from residues that remain in final food products, they can also be found in environmental samples such as water and soil. As a consequence, any pesticides that are present in soil can potentially be incorporated into growing crops. Contaminated soil also represents a serious environmental problem as the pesticides can be transported to other environmental systems such as ground water and air.
